West Ham United can collect enough points in their remaining home Premier League games to ensure top-flight survival, captain Mark Noble has said ahead of Saturday's match against Burnley.

The Hammers fell to a third consecutive defeat as Sean Dyche's charges scored three unanswered second-half goals at the London Stadium.

As that supporter ran back towards the stands two more came on, with home defender James Collins eventually ushering them away. Wood picked out the lively Barnes, who in turn swept the ball high beyond Hart, sparking ugly scenes as several disgruntled Hammers supporters invaded the pitch.

Joint-owners David Gold and David Sullivan, whose decision to uproot the club from its old Upton Park ground to the centerpiece of the 2012 Olympics is behind the anger, left their seats amid the turmoil.

A switch at half-time saw Dyche remove Jeff Hendrick for Chris Wood, dropping the impressive Ashley Barnes into Hendrick's former position behind the main striker.

Meanwhile Burnley's coaching staff allowed children caught up in the chaos to shelter in their dug-out.

West Ham coach, David Moyes has revealed that Andre Ayew was only interested in rejoining Swansea City questioning his commitment level for the club after his exit.

"When I came in I didn't think it was going to be that easy". We're fighting for points.

"But overall, we should have been in front with the chances in the first half - and we had played well".

"I've said it all along, Joe's been good, and I've got competition in some places, so you have to play well".

What we need the club to do now - the supporters, the players, everybody - is pulling together. The Hammers return to Premier League action on Saturday 31 when Southampton are the visitors to the London Stadium (3pm).

The Football Association has "strongly condemned" the crowd disturbances, with West Ham launching a "full and thorough investigation" into the incidents.

"An emergency meeting has been called with all London Stadium stakeholders".

West Ham's 3-0 home defeat by Burnley was marred by fans protesting.
